I recently had a Carrier Heat Pump installed. The air conditioner works perfect. Now we are into fall and I noticed that even though the temps are still above 47 degrees, my auxiliary heat would come on. Most of the time, it would stay on for three minutes, then go off. It is my understanding it should not come on until it is below 35 degrees.
The Carrier tech came out and locked it out at 35 degrees, so I should be OK now. I wasn't aware that this could be done.
He asked me if I wanted to have the Auxiliary Heat indicator turned off on the thermostat. I said sure. Now, I am wondering if I did the right thing. If it is still not working properly I have no way of knowing.
What would you do? Have the man come back and adjust it so the aux light indicator comes back on, or just leave it? I would do it myself, but I believe he disconnected a wire at the back of the thermostat, and I don't feel comfortable messing with the electrical wires.
